Shane Coble aka Stranger Day is no stranger to the party. If there's a gig somewhere in a city or back woods of North Carolina somewhere, you can count on this hell-raisin', whiskey-swiggin' emcee being the main event. Riding off the buzz of his mixtape “Young, Dumb & Dope” (which has amassed 10,000+ downloads), Stanger Day is readying his first collection of songs, Barstool Bounce.
Stranger Day rolls with crew Permanent Vacation, shutting down bars and clubs across the state, and one listen to Barstool Bounceexplains why. Take the first track “Not Playin,’” Stanger Day’s personal favorite. “It’s theme of the record,” explains Stranger Day. “I don’t buy into labels [ie hipster hip-hop, underground, etc]. I make music on my terms and am not trying to fit into some category.”
But Stranger Day can keep the underground ethics of hip-hop on one track and rock a bounce beat too. On his ode to Southern rap “Moonwalking on the Sun,” producer EMYND creates a head-nodding beat that will have clubs goers shakin’ their booties, bounce style.
A product of the glorious 80s, Shane grew up a regular southern kid, listening to artists like from The Clash, Andre 3000 and Cash Money Millionares to Company Flow and Hiero. “I loved punk rock, dirty south rap and the backpack underground stuff.”
Production on Barstool Bounce is shared by EMYND, a Philadelphia-based beat maker (Gucci Mane, Diplo, Lil B from The Pack, Finland's Top Billin crew, Them Jeans, Scottie B, Playboy Tre, G-Side and the Paper Route Gangstaz), and DJA, a Los Angeles based in house producer for Mad Decent producer & Co-producer for Diplo. His production credits include M.I.A, Diplo, Major Lazer, NBA 2k9, GM Hummer, and more.
